A Yup’ik woman, originally from Lower Kalskag, recently returned from the Oceti Sakowin Camp at Standing Rock, North Dakota where she went to demonstrate against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Bedushia Nicholi now lives in La Jolla, California. She hopes to be back visiting Alaska for the holidays, and she also hopes to return to Standing Rock.

Bethel was one of many places where there were rallies and vigils in support of members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe who are protesting the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota. The tribe fears that a leak from the pipeline could have devastating effects on their sacred lands and their water supply in North Dakota. There have been arrests and continuing efforts to remove the protesters, and satellite rallies have been held around the country in support.
